Plan ahead for downtown construction and events

Occasional construction projects and events at U.S. Bank Stadium may impact traffic and parking in our downtown neighborhood. Please allow extra travel and parking time or consider the many public transit options.

Learn more about street closures and alternate routes through the Waze traffic app or the Google Maps app.

Parking Apps

Get the MPLS parking application for iPhone or Android. This convenient application can be downloaded for all platforms. Once you've entered your secure payment information on your application, enter the parking spot number, verify that your information is correct, and begin parking.

Discounted Parking

We offer discounted rates for patients, families, and visitors. Request a validation ticket in your clinic or inpatient unit. Please note that discounted parking for patients and visitors is not available in any of the local surface parking lots.

Long-term hospitalizations

We recommend that family and friends of patients with long-term hospitalizations consider our "20 for $20" parking voucher program. For $20, you can purchase 20 parking passes to be used in a two-week period in the HCMC Parking Ramp. Request an authorization slip from the unit staff and present it in the Gift Shop in the Red Building at the time of purchase.
